International Space Station

How exciting...we have just watched the Space Station pass across the sky from west to east. A friend of ours put us onto this website that gives the exact time when it goes across. We stood outside at 19.19 and had an amazing view as it passed right next to the moon. It's so fast and wasn't even over the UK tonight but it's so high you could see it. Sometimes you can see the space shuttle too, and a toolbag follows that got dropped by a lady astronaut. Whoops! ( I don't think you'd see that though!)

I saw it the other night, but until I read your post I had no idea what it was! Thanks for the info. Jane
